SDD Message


Procedure To Turn Off SDD Error Message



If you wish to deactivate the Service SDD (Speed Dependent Damping) message on the Driver Information Center (DIC) message window, you can do it yourself by using the following procedure.


Four buttons on the AC control are used:

LO (fan speed) = No or skip or increment down

HI (fan speed) = Yes or select or increment up

COOLER = (Blue Button) = decrease by one for each time pressed

WARMER (Red Button) = increase by one for each time pressed


Ignition turned on, car running or not (it does not matter), press and hold the OFF and WARMER buttons on the DIC until the display changes. This is the beginning of the diagnostics mode. After the display changes, release these two buttons. Any stored trouble codes will be listed, and can be copied for future analysis. The automatic function will end at "ECM?".


At that point, press and release the LO button to skip.

At "BCM ?", press HI to select the BCM segment.

At "BCM DATA ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM INPUTS ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM OUTPUTS ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM OVERRIDES?", press HI toi select.

At "BSO No Overrides", you will need to press the HI button until you reach "BSO8 . Note down the current value (probably 3) in case you want to restore it later.

If you have a 1993 Allanté', this value will be 11.

Normally the new stored value should be "1" on 1989 through 1992 Allantés, and "9" on 1993 Allantés.

Press COOLER button until the number on the right is reduced by 2.

Press and hold ELAP TIME and FUEL USED buttons for at least 3 seconds to save the new value in the EEPROM. The display will flash momentarily and then display the newly stored number. Press RESET to exit diagnostics or shut off the ignition.

                                                    Mission Statement

Here at the Cadillac Allante XLR Club, I am anxious to assist you in achieving your goal in helping you enjoy your car with confidence, knowing that the collective knowledge and experience of your fellow members is at your disposal. I love talking, emailing and greeting members because it allows me the opportunity to describe the CAC’s philosophy.

Our years of success are due to helping our members meet all their needs. At the CAC, I give 110% to all your Allanté XLR needs. Anything less is not good enough. Not only are we a National Club, but I have an Allanté-only repair shop located in NJ. It’s also the club house. Feel free to visit anytime.

By being a member, this means that on every call or email, I will give you more than you expect and pay for. Also for those of you that can’t get to the Allanté repair shop, I can also be an angel on your local mechanic’s shoulder by providing them with added advice so he can get your Allanté ready faster.

By consistently going the extra mile, I have created many successful friendships that make me keep on doing what I do. In this same manner, I hope to earn your confidence and friendship.

Now that our shared semi-exotic indulgence is at its historical status, it is in our combined best interest to support the Allanté community. 

I look forward to personally meeting you at one of the Allanté XLR events.
Sincerely, Johnny Monzo...........Remember, you have me at your disposal 24/7.

Dear Allanté and XLR owners,

   If anyone is interested in going to this year 15th Cadillac Allanté XLR National event / Vacation being held in Portland Maine on September 7th, you only have until Monday to book the hotel at the Clarion. After Monday the rates double and triple for Saturday night. So, like I said before, book it, you can always cancel but you can’t always get the rate.  Number is 207-774-5611, and as always, tell them you’re with the Cadillac Allanté XLR club. As of this date, we have 21 cars coming. Once you booked your room, then you need to go to the website click on the events calendar and click on the national event. Click on register on right side fill out and pay online or print and send in your payment. This will let us know what you like to participate in. Were doing some side trips before the event. Check them out. Hope to see you there…   call me with any questions   609-634-6518

   Well your only 1 week away from the Allanté invitational being held in Grand Rapids Mi, and 3 weeks from the Allanté Nationals. Summer is going fast and I’m sure with all the heat and rain, you did not get to show off your Allanté XLR as you would like. Here is one of the main reasons why owners don’t go to events. Because there too far. Is it me or the reason we buy this car is because we love how they drive, and how we feel when we drive them? We all hate the gas prices, but don’t we all love going to a crowed gas station and see the response we get.  And yes, the dreaded breakdown, well most of you know it happened to me last year trying to go to the CLC show in hickory corners in Michigan. I made it as far as Pittsburg. Barbara was not a happy camper, but to not ruin our vacation, I left the car at a mechanics place and rented a car and continued on and made the best of it. So, 14 nationals, and about 20 other Allanté and CLC shows, only 1 breakdown. That is one dame good Allanté record.

   Another part of going to an event is getting there and back, you plan up and back. With Google you will see so many things to do and see. Now the caravanning, you ever drive and see another Allanté on the road, you know that felling you get. How about driving to an event and every 30 miles you pick up another one and by the time you to where your going, your 6 to 10 strong. If you never done this, you are missing the whole “ALLANTÉ XLR EXPERENCE”

   I don’t know if you guys are seeing it, but I’m getting more calls and more people asking about the Allanté then I did in about 6 years. This may be a great sign. Let’s keep it up. And the only way to do this is show our cars. Let’s get them out there and keep the prices up. After the national meet, I will send a email out to members only. Get ready auction memorabilia  and parts  


Summer is here, time to get those Allantes to Car Shows
